For the past seven years, my performance career has primarily focused on Cuban Timba. In addition to my real-world experience with the genre, I have held multiple lectures and seminars on the style at universities across New York State as well as online. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to participate in this wonderful genre in such an extensive way, something few outsiders have been able to do. For that reason I am especially passionate about sharing the knowledge I've acquired with others.

I also specialize in jazz improvisation and other styles of "world music" including Afro-Peruvian, Venezuelan and even some styles from southeastern Europe.

As a teacher I emphasize technique, reading, rhythm and creating an organized practice routine. I'm also a strong advocate of transcription, especially of repertoire, which key when studying any style of music.

I also hope to inspire my students to become independent in following there own musical curiosity, regardless of what ...

Ian learned my band's music and hit the stage without rehearsal!

It could have been his deep knowledge of Latin music and musical training, or both. Either way, you are in for a treat of you get to work with Ian. He has the discipline, great sound and a friendly attitude. A very thorough and grounded musician.
Mario
Ian is a kind and patient teacher, a master of his craft and knows how to communicate musical concepts in a clear manner. I studied Cuban/latin music styles with him as well as theory and technique on the bass guitar. In regards to my latin music focus, the information presented is straight from the source, and he has a wealth of material to dig into. He provided the tools and perspective of a real working musician and tailored my lessons to my level of skill.
Nathan
Ian Stewart is rare among artists: in addition to being a master of his craft, he is also a great teacher. While his knowledge of music is vast and deep, he excels at breaking information down for the student and teaching the aspiring musician how to practice effectively and efficiently. He emphasizes the importance of self-assessment so that, ultimately, the students can teach themselves.
I recommend Ian Stewart highly.

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual. I've worked with beginners who've never touched a guitar to professionals looking to broaden their horizons, all ages too! I am a very professional, motivated and flexible teacher looking to help you learn the guitar!

I am a flautist with over 12 years of experience; performing as a soloist, in an orchestral setting and with jazz ensembles. I hold a Licentiate (LTCL) Diploma (2009) and a Grade 8 Certificate on Flute (2008) from Trinity College London.

I focus on the fundamentals (tone, technique and timing) using my own personalized approach to methods such as long tones, scales/ arpeggios and technical studies. I also allow students to be creative and express themselves through the art of music.

Jeremy sings and plays the flute in our church choir. He has proved himself to be the ultimate musician. Always amazed by his great skill and talent in enhancing our sound. He would certainly have much to offer the up and coming flutist.
Jann-Marie
I was one of Jeremy's first students. My parents were forcing me to pick up music as a hobby and i was very hesitant because it seemed tedious to me. My mom then heard about Jeremy from her friend and asked if he was willing to teach me. He was very patient as i admit i was not the best student, but he stuck with me and now i am taking auditions to play for an orchestra as a principal flute player. I will always be grateful to him for getting me to love and enjoy music as i was against it in the beginning, I would recommend that everyone make him your teacher, he really is awesome! Love ya teach!
Giselle
As a teacher myself, I find Jeremy-Paul's tutoring service is to recommended as he is very patient and understands the student's capability. As a new learner, he has really given me an excellent start. He makes his lessons interesting and demands a high level of expectations. He is very passionate about his craft and is very enthusiac about engaging his students.

Blues Acoustic and Electric guitar lessons are taught as a way to express yourself, to creatively "sing" with your instrument. Starting with the major and minor pentatonic, we will learn those blues basics and favorites that started the blues movement and influenced rock as heard by Jimmy Page and Slash.

About Jesse

Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing. I specialize i

I work one-on-one with each student to develop not only a better saxophone player, but a solid basis for musicianship. Beginners will start with the basics, but advancing students can choose the area with which they choose to delve into. I specialize in college audition and contest prep, as well as jazz performance and improvisation.

"Legit, one of the coolest people I've ever known. Deeply vested in getting you where you want to be. Eric helped me identify exactly where I wanted to go and a game plan to get to there. While our focus has always been voice, we've touched on guitar and even music in general (theory, production, business, etc.). If you've got a question, Eric has answers or deets on where to find them. He helped me organize and focus years of experience and practice into an effective and fun program, both in the studio and back home. Best part: dude leads by example. Rock on! \m/"

"Sammy took the time to understand my exact range and current abilities. Because of this he was able to give me some great starting exercises which were specifically tailored to my current abilities and natural vocal characteristics.

Also, the lesson was fun and he was very animated and put words and visual understanding to vocal concepts in a way that was fascinating and helpful. I've had lessons before but his education and experience really stood out in the way he understands the biology and process. We will be meeting again for sure!"

Kelvin's unparalleled enthusiasm for life and music shines through in his playing and teaching style. He shows a strong proficiency in many different styles and on multiple instruments.

He's reliable, experienced, professional, and a great guy all around. One of Kelvin's main strengths is his ability to convey a given subject matter in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.

I'm also a music teacher (private lessons and in the classroom) as well as a professional performer. I've found it to be a great pleasure working with Kelvin and I would strongly recommend him as a teacher and a performer."
